Skylark Convertible
Designer: Harley Earl
Chassis #: 53 47 89 SX
Sold for $20,900 at 2007 Christies.
This 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible was offered for sale at the 2007 Christies auction of 'Exceptional Motor Cars at the Monterey Jet Center.'

This 1953 Buick Skylark Convertible, in very original condition, was brought to Christies auction in 2007 for the 'Exceptional Motor Cars at the Monterey Jet Center.' In all respects, in this cars present condition, it is not an exceptional motor car. What it does have is the potential to become one, and that's what the seller and auction house were hoping for when it was brought across the auction block in search of a new owner.

It is blue with blue and white interior with dirt still on the vehicles hood. Names have been written into the dirt on the hood as a sort-of memorial to the cars past. The engine is a 322 cubic-inch Fireball V8 with a Dynaflow three-speed automatic.

On auction day this car was the second of two Buick Skylarks from 1953. The first was a very spectacular version of the Skylark, and this 'monstrosity' followed in its fumes. This vehicle had no reserve and was estimated to sell for $10,000 - $20,000. Again, the seller and auction house hoped that buyers would see the potential in the car and be inspired by the prior Skylark that had rolled onto the stage in glorious fashion. Their tactics were rewarded with a high bid of $20,900 including buyer's premium.
